From the minutes of the Mitcham Borough Council, volume 6, 1939 to 1940
58. REMOVAL of TRAMWAY RAILS. – The Borough Engineer submitted the following report: –
February 13, 1940.
REMOVAL OF TRAMWAY RAILS
The Ministry of Transport have asked whether the Council will agree to the removal of the tramway rails from London Road and Croydon Road. The price payable will be 8 per ton, less the cost of removal, which will result in a favourable balance, which will be carried to the classification accounts, and I recommend the Committee to agree. The length of tramway rails involved is 12,000 yards in Croydon Road and 2,760 yards in London Road.
Borough Engineer and Surveyor.
Resolved, That authority be glven to the Borough Engineer as recommended.
